Fire on Montgo – Photos, story and trubutes to the gallant teams who fought it.

On Monday 10th January, the first photo appeared on the Javea Connect group, which showed that a fire had broken out above the Ermita area of the Montgo. Many other posts followed. monitoring both the scary progress and then the steady decline of the fire which our wonderful emergency services managed to control with a few hours.

Rather than blast you with words – these photos tell the story far better than I can describe… ( Pictures taken from JC group members posts and various official sources)

Later, the Neighbours Association of the Montgó in Javea carried a tribute to the professionals and volunteers who participated last Monday in the extinction of the fire that broke out in the Barranc del Migdia devastating 8 hectares of public forest.

Residents praised the rapid response and deployment of equipment and manpower by land and air.

The Alicante firefighters were treated to lunch at La Ermita supermarket the following day, whilst they continued to dampen the area and on Wednesday they supplied coffees and paid tribute to all involved, which included the chief of the Dénia fire station, Javier Fayos; the chief intendant of the local police of Xàbia, José Antonio Monfort, Voluntarios Balcon al Mar commantant Terry Curran & vice commandant Peter De Graaf, plus those responsible for the Javea Civil Protection and commanders of the Javea Guardia Civil.

The Councilor for Residents, Doris Courcelles, also attended.This association plans to carry out a collection to make a donation to the bodies of volunteers and that they continue to improve their fire prevention and extinguishing equipment.

Meanwhile, sadly, the Ramblars fire continues to burn after two months…
